Crypt of Agadeem Discussion

Hey DRye200 great suggestions, Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker and Secret Salvage are too slow and rather irrelevant for the combo, but Crypt of Agadeem is great I'll add it as a must, thanks.

Oooh, I love seeing what other people have for their Apostle decks! Here's mine.

I would recommend Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, Secret Salvage, and Crypt of Agadeem.

Nethereon on Rats and their Patron: 1st Budget Build

Concise list of considerations:

-/+ Dump Mind Twist and add Torment of Hailfire HOLY CRAP, do I love this card. It gets around so many things plus it hits every opponent.

Let's talk about your mana base for a second...

Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.

Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?

Hope this helps, good luck!

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Attrition is a great sac outlet

Creakwood Liege

High Market

Crypt of Agadeem

1 sweeper would be good, even for a creature heavy deck, since you can rebuild from the graveyard well. Something like Decree of Pain

Massacre Wurm

gain and drainers like Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble

Avenger of Zendikar

Sorry, the only thing I can think of is a couple things for the Mana base.

Cabal Coffers,Crypt of Agadeem ,or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could help you out.

I'm running a couple mono decks. I like switching out your basic lands for Snow-Covered Swamps and running Extraplanar Lens.

Yeah Viridian Longbow is a great card, no mana cost to do damage; but i prefer Pathway Arrows because the secondary effect that say "If colorless creature is dealt damage in this way, tap it." can be useful vs some indestructible creatures ;-).For the red color i prefer to leave this deck monoblack, also for lands budget and some synergic cards like Erebos and Beseech the Queen. I saw some budget interesting cards like Genju of the Fens , Livewire Lash , Crypt of Agadeem and Bojuka Bog. What do you think?

Build drana right and you will have tons more mana than you know what to do with. Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Caged Sun, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Doubling Cube, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Crypt of Agadeem, Vesuva. I think that is most of the big ones. You don't need all of these btw, I'm just listing options. Though I wouldn't build drana without Liliana of the Dark Realms. It is just too good to have both. On top of all that you are playing black and eldrazi die to Tragic Slips all the time. If that is looking too expensive there are plenty of cheaper options but those can also easily be the only expensive cards in the deck. Everything else could be really cheap and it will still be a good deck.
